Queerying 6th after Epiphany C

Rev. Emily E. Ewing queeries the Gospel reading.

ID: a calligraphy-styled ambigram shows blessed and cursed as their own ambigrams of each other.
Gospel: Luke 6:17-26
17Jesus came down with his chosen family and stood on a level place, with a great crowd of his followers and a great multitude of people from all Judea, Jerusalem, and the coast of Tyre and Sidon. 18They had come to hear Jesus and to be healed of their diseases; and those who were troubled with unclean spirits were cured. 19And all in the crowd were trying to touch Jesus, for power came out from him and healed all of them.

20Then Jesus looked up at his disciples and said: “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the dominion of God.
21“Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you will be filled.
“Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh.
22“Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude you, revile you, and defame you on account of the Human One. 23Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, for surely your reward is great in heaven; for that is what their ancestors did to the prophets.
24“But woe to you who are rich, for you have received your consolation.
25“Woe to you who are full now, for you will be hungry.
“Woe to you who are laughing now, for you will mourn and weep.
26“Woe to you when all speak well of you, for that is what their ancestors did to the false prophets.

Queeries for the text:
What did we skip?
How does power come out from someone?
Which people are poor?
Who weeps today?
Who is blessed? Cursed?
Who is hated on account of the Human One?
Who has received consolation?
Who is full?
Who do "all" speak well of? 

What are your queeries?
